When it comes to mold production management ERP, the most intuitive idea of many partners is: are you talking about MES? Indeed, MES is indeed the most popular manufacturing execution system at present, and it is also very consistent with the concept of industry 4.0. It can effectively help mold enterprises realize information and digital management in production. However, many small partners of mold enterprises are more keenly aware that ERP in the mold industry also includes: ERP mold enterprise management software, CRM customer relationship management software, APS advanced planning and scheduling system, CAPP computer-aided process design software, SCM supply chain management system, PDM Product data management system and other mold software, and many of them are closely related to production management. Many small partners wonder: is an MES enough for mold production management ERP? Today, acloudear, a digital expert in the field of machine parts manufacturing, specially came to analyze relevant problems for you.
MES (Manufacturing Execution System), the full Chinese name of which is manufacturing execution system, is a production information management system for the workshop execution level of manufacturing enterprises, which is mainly responsible for workshop production management and scheduling execution. By emphasizing the overall optimization of the manufacturing process, we can help enterprises implement complete closed-loop production and help enterprises establish an integrated and real-time erp/mes/sfc information system. Create a solid, reliable, comprehensive and feasible manufacturing collaborative management platform for enterprises. It can be called a shoulder in the field of production management and execution!
Is the MES of mold production management ERP enough? It is not required to be highly refined, the Order BOM is not complex, and there are no special requirements for scheduling. It should basically be OK. In the “acloudear white paper on digital transformation of mechanical parts manufacturing enterprises”, the expert of digital transformation of mechanical parts manufacturing enterprises and SAP platinum partner mentioned that mold and mechanical parts manufacturing enterprises often need ERP to integrate MES, SCM, CRM, PDM, CAPP, APS and other systems, so as to view production and manufacturing from the perspective of supply chain and form multiple end-to-end processes. It seems that the mold production management with high requirements is not enough.
It can be seen that the narrow sense of mold production management ERP – MES is really not enough. If we really need to be highly refined, deal with too many BOMs and complex scheduling, mold enterprises should consider having ERP, MES, and APS advanced planning and scheduling system, PDM Product data management system and other systems. Of course, how to choose depends on the urgency of enterprises’ demand for their own refinement.
Finally, when we gradually clear the relationship between mold production management ERP and MES, APS and other software, it becomes clearer and easier to choose. In fact, the production of mold enterprises is only one aspect of realizing intelligent mold enterprises. We want to make mold enterprises fully digitalized. We need to understand the digital trend, pain points and transformation direction from the field of mechanical parts of mold, and then combined with the actual situation of mold enterprises, choose mold production management ERP and mold ERP and other software to help enterprises realize digital transformation. All this is described in detail in the white paper on digital transformation of acloudear mechanical parts manufacturing enterprises. If you want to succeed in digital transformation, this book is worth downloading and reading carefully to help you avoid detours and accelerate transformation.
